Mako, why?

Playing Mass Effect for the first time and just drove the Mako. I understand that some people love the awkward shark-car and I guess I can see why people would have the same kind of affection for the Mako that I have for my first car, the ‘85 Ford Thunderbird with the malfunctioning idle-control switch that made the car literally idle at 55 mph and required me to get multiple brake replacements because I basically had to ride the brakes in order to go under the speed limit in town, and also was absolute murder on the ice-covered roads of rural Illinois in Winter, throwing me into a ditch once and forcing my car to skid UPHILL because it could not get it’s rear-wheel-drive ass to face the same direction as its momentum.

That car was an absolute shitshow, but it was mine and that rusty deathtrap got me to college and home more often than it had any right to, and the Mako has now duplicated almost all of those feats: poorly controlled acceleration, poor traction, wonky steering, masochistic attraction to flaming ditches and caused outright murder. So basically, it’s Shepard’s first car that she worked at Dairy Queen for three summers to buy and it might be a piece of shit, but it’s her piece of shit, god dammit and she’s the only one who can drive it worth a damn.

Pines Portal AU

In this Gravity Falls AU. Stan, Dipper and Mabel get sucked into the portal in “Not What he Seems” After they are sucked in they find Ford right away. Ford is still mad at Stanley and punched him like in the Canon Gravity Falls. But here they make up much, much sooner then normal. Together they team up to face whatever is in the portal. Meanwhile in Gravity Falls the rest of the people knew they disappeared but they didn’t know where. Dipper and Mabel’s parents just think them and Stan died in a car crash. I’m the portal Ford, Stan, Dipper and Mabel still keep that family bond they had outside the portal. Stan teaches the kids how to fight and hunt. Ford homeschools them and teaches them what be knows about the dimension they are trapped in. They are trapped in that portal together for 11 years. ( that means Ford was there for 41 years). Eleven years after the Pines are sucked, on September 25 of 2023 in the portal, 19 year old Luna Evans. Sneaks into the portal room below the Mystery Shack, which Soos has run ever since Stan “disappeared” to try bring the Pines back. She knows all about mystery and the supernatural. Since the Pines disappeared there had been rumors that they were sucked into the portal. She is basically a female version of Dipper. After 5 hours down in the portal room, Luna finally succeeds. She is astonished. She immediately introduces herself and tells the Pines everything they need to know about the year 2023 ( gravity falls takes place in 2012 eleven years later would be 2023 ) Since he hasn’t seen a person besides Stan, Mabel, and Ford, for eleven years, Dipper is even more awkward around new people. Mabel and Luna becomes best friends quickly after even thought Mabel is 24 and Luna is still 19. Ford and Stan move to the Gravity Falls nursing home. Everyone is shocked that the Pines are alive, especially Stan and Ford because they are 85. They take some time to adjust to normal life again because in The Nightmare Realm. their reflexes had to be lighting quick In order to survive. Dipper and Mabel do find out their parents committed suicide because they got super depressed after they were trapped in the portal. Dipper is thankful for Luna saving them. He soon gets a little crush on her but is too shy too admit it. Luna is too shy to tell Dipper she has a crush on him. I’ll post more on this AU and a few drawings when I finish them feel free to make headcanons headcanons and ask me questions.
